THE PLOT THUS FAR
When ambitious young real estate agent Leigh is asked to sell a house with a checkered past, she crosses paths with a disturbed girl whom she learns is the runaway daughter of the couple selling the property. When Leigh tries to intervene and help her, she becomes entangled with a supernatural force that soon pulls Leigh’s artist sister Vera into its web – and has sinister plans for both of them.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“At the Devil’s Door” is a creative take on how a spirit intertwines with a home. Following three women and their various involvement with the supernatural, we see what happens to certain roles in sketchy areas. I miss seeing Catalina Moreno doing films and I hope to see her keep taking charge. It’s just sad, as so much time is given to Naya Rivera and Ashley Rickards. They are OK actresses, but they can’t ever hold their own against Moreno. So, that’s what we’ve got. A story that doesn’t do much and misbalanced acting.
Horror has always loved to use houses as their focal point. Gothic horror tends to be the focal point for these tales, but recent genre tweaks try to blend their talents into other fields. The results as with this film are never that great. However, I appreciate the effort to think outside of the box. If you’re following the director over from his previous efforts on “The Pact”, then this film will mark a step back in terms of enjoyment.
The Blu-Ray comes with commentary, featurette, deleted scenes and a trailer as the special features. The A/V Quality is quite impressive for indie horror. The 1080p transfer shows great range. Plus, the DTS-HD 5.1 track really gets a chance to impress. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
